Team NEVADA Welcomes You to Las Vegas


Dickens, Rod, Parks & Recreation


Las Vegas is known for doing things in a big way and the delivery of recreation and cultural services in this growing metropolitan area is no different. Five local public parks and recreation departments with staffs ranging in size from nine to 180 offer a wide array of programs and services to residents in the Las Vegas Valley and throughout Clark County's 8,000-square-mile radius. With more than 280 parks, 57 recreation and cultural centers, before-and-after-school recreation enrichment programs at 200 local school sites, 35 aquatic facilities and hundreds of miles of trails, these entities work closely to align programs and identify service areas so as to offer a seamless experience to the public.

This year's designated local host committee, dubbed Team NEVADA, is excited to showcase the people, places and programs that contribute to the high quality of life experienced by Southern Nevada's more than 2 million residents. Retired professionals, The Outside Las Vegas Foundation, the University of Nevada Las Vegas and the Nevada Recreation and Park Society joined professionals from Clark County Parks and Recreation, Boulder City, Las Vegas, Henderson and North Las Vegas to form "Team NEVADA." This robust alliance welcomes 2015 NRPA Annual Conference attendees and looks forward to providing guests with a glimpse of life and leisure beyond the neon!
